Juin-tech Brakes? Anyone?

Postby Jaby Beezus on Fri 26/Dec/14 8:39pm

Does anybody have any more information on these? Are they any good? They look the part, and are pretty well priced at just shy of $160 for the pair, landed.

Reason I ask is that the standard Shimano discs that came with my bike are nothing short of woeful and have been since the day I bought it, i've also got a new wheelset ready to finish which has 6-bolt hubs instead of centerlock, and thought sod it, why spend money on rotors when I could just buy a complete brakeset? I'm on a tight budget, hence the el-cheapo products :blush:

As much as i'd love Hope or Hayes or another set of Avid Codes (my 1st gens were excellent, om nom nom), I just cant afford to shell out that much money at the moment, especially with another move up the country looking likely and an ageing English car in need of constant attention/dollars.

This is them:

As with everyone else, hell no.

Are your Shimanos properly bled? Have sintered pads? Shimano SLX & XT are sweet brakes, even the current Deore is mighty fine bang for the buck.

:withstupid: I don't believe in the shimano upgrade bs... apart from with brakes. Well set up deores are the best budget brakes I've used.

Yep, I've added Shimano M395 brakes to 2 of my bikes - while not expensive at $60 an end, they are surprisingly firm and good enough for me ... hell I heat them up more in commuting than I do in trails!

The only times I've had problems with Shimano brakes, have coincidentally been with their Organic pads... Just completely lacked any friction. Sorted both times, with a new set of sintered pads, and using Brakleen to wipe down the rotor. Then importantly, bedding them in with a couple of decent runs.

They look more like a copybof a tektro draco. Probably the chinese factory the manufacturers for tektro

Don't. Just don't.

Only Shimano stuff I buy is brakes. SLX is the sweet spot.

I've Saint M820s now and have not been able to fry them. Previous four pot Avid's it was impossible not to fry them.

If you want cheap, I have just removed a set of tektro hydraulic.

Offers. 160 and 180mm 6 bolt rotors and rear adapter included.
